As with many Motel 6 facilities, this one is in poor shape. It was only converted to a Motel 6 within the past 2 years so I expected it might be ok-I was wrong. The bed was ok but the spread had a cigarette burn in the middle of it. The worst thing was that it was typical MN cold... More

If you can't wait to stay in a place that makes All other accommodations look superior by comparison, stay here. If you want to snuggle your toes along cold linoleum (not even a throw rug on the bare floor) at the end of your day of driving, stay here. If you want to nod off to the sounds of rambunctious...

The location was fine, but our bathroom was never cleaned, the tub had a bathroom ring and the toilet had hair all around the base of it. The bed spread was stained and didnt even want to touch that. The desk person was somewhat pleasant whenever he was there. We will never stay at another Hotel 6.

Once again thoroughly surprised. Was on the 3 floor. Room was very clean. My internet was a little bogged at first, it happens, wait a minute you people of little patience, it gets better, really. Had a nice TV, for those who need a flat screen, it is present and pretty big. Had a desk which had plug ins on... More

Stayed one night here and found this property's staff very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are modern with large flat screen TV and comfortably bed. Property is off the expressway but easy to get to. Property is also quiet and peaceful. Would stay here again if in the area.

This is your typical basic, Motel 6. The room was clean, bathroom was clean. Basic amenities. No carpeting on the floor, which was a plus in my book. Not your typical filthy, overused carpeting that you find in many budget motels. Owner was friendly and efficient. Good price and good enough for an inexpensive night's stay.

We had to make a stop on our trip back from the Black Hills South Dakota and needed a place that allowed multiple dogs. The room was large, clean and actually quite modern. It was on the first floor which we didn't have to worry about our dogs waking anyone up with their running back and forth and I loved... More

I will say that our room was clean but that is about it. First off, a ground floor room is really a sub basement room with windows that are at ground level. There was at least one family staying there and the cooking smells were awful in the hallway. The room was extremely small. There is no chair or even... More

As a Senior Contributor, I have come to rely upon opinions of others before making reservations anywhere. This hotel was the most disappointing of all the Motel 6's I have ever stayed. By the way, folks, those are not wood floors, that is linoleum made to look like wood. I paid about $56 to stay here and if I could... More
